How to Calculate Armature Current for DC Shunt Generator?
Armature Current for DC Shunt Generator calculator uses Armature Current = Shunt Field Current+Load Current to calculate the Armature Current, Armature Current for DC Shunt Generator is the Current which Flows in Armature Winding or rotating Winding of Motor or generator. An armature is the component of an electric machine that carries alternating current. The armature windings conduct AC current even on DC machines, due to the commutator action (which periodically reverses current direction) or due to electronic commutation, as in brushless DC motors. Armature Current is denoted by I_{a} symbol.
How to calculate Armature Current for DC Shunt Generator using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Armature Current for DC Shunt Generator, enter Shunt Field Current (I_{sh}) & Load Current (I_{L}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Armature Current for DC Shunt Generator calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.7 = 0.75+0.95.
